I received complimentary product from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #AppleWeek recipes.
All opinions are mine alone.

Here we are at the second day of a week-long event all about Fall's darling, the apple. You can read my introductory post, peruse the prize packages from our generous event sponsors, and enter the giveaway: here. You won't want to miss out. Really.

As far as recipes go, two dozen bloggers have been working hard to bring you over eighty recipes to bring apples to your Autumn table.

#AppleWeek Day Two Recipes

Apple Snickerdoodles
Snickerdoodles are my Enthusiastic Kitchen Elf's favorite cookies. So, it was easy to get him to help me make them. You can use your favorite snickerdoodle recipe; the only tweak we really made: reduce the butter as you're adding moisture with the shredded apple from event sponsor Envy Apples. We also used organic vanilla bean paste from Taylor & Colledge and cane sugar from Bob's Red Mill. Gotta love these generous sponsors* who sent the bloggers products to use in their recipe creations.

Ingredients

  • 7 T softened butter
  • 1 C cane sugar + 4 T for rolling (prefer Bob's Red Mill)
  • 1 egg 
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored, and grated (prefer Envy)
  • 1 t pure vanilla paste (prefer Taylor & Colledge)
  • 1/2 t ground cinnamon + 2 T for rolling
  • 1/4 t ground cardamom
  • 1/4 t ground nutmeg
  • 3 C flour
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • Also needed: baking sheet, silicone mat or parchment paper, scoop 

Procedure

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small bowl, blend together 4 T sugar and 2 T ground cinnamon for rolling.

In a small mixing bowl, blend together flour, baking soda, baking powder, 1/2 t ground cinnamon, 1/4 t ground cardamom, and 1/4 t ground nutmeg. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until lightened and fluffy. Beat in egg, shredded apples, and pure vanilla paste.

Gradually blend in the flour mixture until you have a smooth dough. Here you can use a scoop which is much easier...or you can roll walnut-sized balls with your hands. 



Place the dough balls in the cinnamon mixture and roll to coat completely.


Place onto prepared cookie sheets. 



Bake for 10 to 11 minutes in the preheated oven - or until golden. If you prefer more crunchy cookies, bake for a minute or two longer. 


Let cool for a few minutes before removing them to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy! For one dozen, D rolled the baked cookies in the leftover cinnamon-sugar for extra flavor. It was delicious.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
